The GTHA Instructional Program (IP)/Early Hockey Skill Development runs for two sessions - typically starting in late October and January.

The program is designed for children that are 5 years old and up that are beginner skaters.

If your child is older than five - then they might get transferred mid-season to their appropriate birth year team if they have advanced enough to reach that level.

ALL 5 year olds stay in the Instructional Program(IP)/Early Hockey Skill Development program for the year.

For more information about the GTHA hockey program - please visit our GETTING STARTED page for more details.
